...in case anyone cares that I haven't stopped uploading trailers. I'll get back to it in a couple of days when I can get back to my own pc. My mother-in-law is recovering from another knee replacement surgery (thank God she only has two of 'em) and my wife is over at her house taking care of her, and that is where I'm at as I write this. So since I can't upload anything until I get home, I have a question. I played one of my old uploads here on the site on Mom's computer and notice that there seemed to be some pixellating in the picture. Now when I play these files at home on my own computer (from my folder) the picture doesn't look that bad. So the question is; do the files lose any resolution when they are uploaded or is it just some distortion from the site's player? If anyone knows please let me know.

Hang in there, man. I'm in the same situation (wife taking care of mom at mom's house) but I'm at home holding down the fort alone.

I'm lucky in at least one respect and that is my mom-in-law lives nearby so I at least get to go over to her house to spend time with my wife on some days. Hope you're as lucky.

Yep, she's nearby here as well. I go over for visits. Our surviving parents are all under fairly close dr's care.

The movie player plays a FLV of the 512Kb MPEG4 derivative of the original file. I've noticed that it messes up on some movies.

Thanks. I thought it might be something like that. I was just curious.

I just helped my mom through that surgery. She lives in Nashville,TN and I live In South Carolina...She did great after a little soreness. She made us proud after a few days when she put down her pain meds and said it was time to toughen up. She will be 80 years old in July this coming year. She is 4'10" and weighs about a hundred pounds (as she puts it) soaking wet with a pocket full of rocks. She has 3 sons all in their 50s now.We came in from SC and Texas to join our younger brother in Nashville. We were expecting it to be a month or two before she got on her feet again. In no time at all she was up in the mornings trying to hobble around the kitchen to fix everyone breakfast. She got frustrated when we tried to get her to sit in her LAZY BOY and let us do it. The second knee was a breeze for her.
